If I had to do it again I'd still go the manual rout...

I have the Big Foot 4 pump factory system but would have gone with the single pump system if my dealer had not sold it to me at his cost which was close to the cost of the single pump system from Big Foot.

The up side to having a 4 pump system is the ability to handle the weight. I like that assurance. I thought about buying the single pump system but when I learned of the capacity and overall design, I chose to go with the 4 pump system.

Not that your suppose to do this but the single pump will lift the entire coach clear of the ground if you wish.. you have all the same controls as the 4 pump... in pares front or rear or left side or right...

Agreed, unless the pump output pressure or the cylinder piston size is different on the single pump system,which I don't believe it is, they will lift the same weight.

Three of the four pump systems on my unit have leaked or leak to some degree. It may not be much and unless you park in a garage with a white floor like I do or wipe your hand over the control box bottom, you may not even notice it. I gave up trying to fix them unless it's more than a just weeper.

So my supposed level camp site is not so level and I don't have enough blocks to get me 100% level. Big Foot levels are coming this February so sure!

Mounting brackets position

Does anyone know where to mount the brackets on a 30 ft fr3 or any pictures available. Also are there any installation instruction anywhere.


Thanks in advanced for any input.
